Veccus or BECCUS, JOANNES (*Be/kkos, *Be/kos, or *Be/kwn), an ecclesiastic of some celebrity in the latter part of the thirteenth century of our era. From the office of Chartophylax in the great church of Constantinople, he was elevated to the patriarchate of that city, by Michael Palaeologus, in A. D. 1274, on account of his friendly dispositions towards the Latin Church. Veccus had at first been warmly opposed to the Latins, but his feelings towards them were changed by the perusal of the writings of Nicephorus Blemmyda. He continued patriarch of Constantinople until the death of the emperor Michael, in A. D. 1283, when the ultra-Greek party regained their ascendancy, and Veccus found it necessary to resign his episcopate. He spent the remainder of his life in suffering persecution from the now dominant party, sometimes in exile and sometimes in prison, where he died in A. D. 1298. The most virulent of his opponents and persecutors was George of Cyprus. [GEORGIUS, No. 20.] Works
